John “Jack” Edward Roth, 1937-2017

In Loving Memory. John “Jack” Edward Roth passed away on Jan. 10, 2017 in Tehachapi, Calif. He was 79 years old.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Feb. 17, 2017, at Wood Family Funeral Service in Tehachapi, Calif. Interment at Bakersfield National Cemetery will be held at a later date.

Jack was a loving husband to wife, Sylvia; a wonderful father, grandfather, great-grandfather and uncle. He was extremely proud to be a United States Navy veteran, Los Angeles County firefighter, and sheriff, as well as a territorial farrier, and masonry bricklayer.

Remember me, fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt and given me relief. So, dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am now, but as I used to be. Because I will remember you all, and look on with a smile.

Wood Family Funeral Service has been entrusted with his care. For condolences please visit
